Let’s see what happens when I choose myself

A goal without a plan is just a wish - NZ Muse

I can’t recall ever being so excited for a new year.

For so long I’ve been putting others first, to the detriment of my own physical and mental wellbeing.

All it’s served to do is drain my bank account and reserves of patience (and let’s face it, neither were all that flush to begin with).

No more.

Resisting that caretaking urge, to take over things, to handle them, goes against every instinct I have. But it must be done.

It’s easier to achieve when you have focus on a singular mission. This year that’s my own health and happiness.

After all, the only good things that happened last year were the things I made happen. Funny that.

    Focusing on our own goals and not minding much on others’ is beneficial because it guarantees more results. It just gives us more motivation and makes more determined. Happy New Year!

    Go for it, kid! Put that white charger out to pasture! Here’s hoping for a better 2016, and one free of other people’s problems.

    I don’t know exactly what is going on (although I think I have a pretty good idea) and I’m glad you are taking time for yourself. It can feel like such a huge release when you’re not carrying someone else’s dead weight.
